Wisely, Rogan was in his stand very early. The first deer, does, made their appearance at about 7:30 a.m. They milled around about a half-hour, then started acting spooky. Rogan's first thought was that the does had caught his scent. But then he started hearing the sound of an approaching deer, which was an eight-point buck. When it got within 30 yards of the does it stopped, then bounded toward them. First the deer moved toward Rogan's stand, then they ran off. He heard thrashing, and soon two does were visible, then the younger deer that had been with them before the buck intervened.
